Gospel-Driven Giving and Orphan Care

The only thing that will compel, motivate, drive a person’s heart to give and reach out to the broken and marginalized is the Good News of Christ. Nothing else will (see 2 Cor. 8-9).

Dan Cruver at Together For Adoption has an excellent post today from the life and preaching of George Whitefield. The post details how Whitefield’s preaching of the gospel led people to give $173,000 for Georgia’s orphans in just 11 days.

The love of money is conquered by the love of Christ not the threatening of the law. A cheerful giver is created by a cheerful God who announces to selfish sinners self-less, life-giving Good News!
